Techniques are presented to simplify user workflow by providing a controller that allows the user to define location based intent (profiles) at one central place. Rather than requiring the user to manually dig up the device location and feed in provisioning specific to that location on each device, the controller may simplify these operations by automatically feeding the location aware rules to devices as it learns the device location. Moreover, the user can change the policy rules for a specific location at any time, and the controller can automatically push the change to devices in real time. The user does not need to worry if a device moves from one location to other location as the controller automatically provisions the devices suited for the new location. Furthermore, since the controller has network-wide view, it can simplify user workflow to enforce location based compliance/intent.
